We were looking into doing something different this year for our art class. We used to just do random art projects that the kids would pull out of our "Art Jar". That was fun and you can see our posts here.
This time, since the big kids entered 1st Grade, we decided to take it a step further and base our projects on famous artists. Some of you already know the lovely Erica over at the Confessions of a Homeschooler. Isn't she so unbelievably talented?
Well, she put together a lesson plan called The World's Greatest Artists Volume 1 (yes, she also has volume 2) and that is what we purchased to guide us this year in our study. Besides using her puzzles, flashcards, and lap book printables, we also came up with our own art projects that one way or another went along with the featured artist's work. You can follow our journey post by post as it will unfold during the year. We will include books, tips, and videos that you could use as an addition to the wonderful lesson unit Erica put together. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
